EMBO offers funded fellowships to post-doctoral researchers in the sciences for up to two years in laboratories located throughout Europe and the world. The fellowship includes a stipend, relocation allowance, and support for fellows who have children. Winners can attend the EMBO Lab Leadership Course and become part of the global network of EMBO Fellows.

About EMBO: EMBO is an organization of more than 1,800 eminent researchers in the biological sciences in Europe and beyond. The main objective of the organization is to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scholars can achieve their best work.

Financial Benefits from Postdoctoral Fellowships from EMBO

  • EMBO awards grants to the host institution with the sole objective of covering the costs of the employment contract issued by the host institution to the winning fellow. These costs include the employer’s social contributions, granted social contributions, taxes as required by national and local laws and regulations, and the grantee’s net salary.
  • The EMBO Fellowship does not cover bench fees, overheads, funds for consumables, or any other financial benefits of the host supervisor or recipient institute, and the rate of the fellowship is dependent on the country in which it is held.
  • For children under the age of six, fellows can claim childcare support costs of up to €2,500 per fellowship year and per child, the corresponding amount assessed according to the part of the year in which the childcare expenses were incurred.
  • A transportation allowance to cover travel costs of up to 5,000 euros for the fellow and his family to and from the host institute.

Selection Criteria for Postdoctoral Fellowships from EMBO

All applications are initially reviewed by the EMBO Fellowships Office to ensure that they are complete and eligible, then all eligible applications are sent to the Fellowships Committee for pre-screening and approximately twice the number of available fellowships are selected for an interview (approximately 30% of applications). During the pre-screening, the committee reviews an abbreviated application form that includes a summary of the applicant’s major scientific achievements along with the top three publications, the concise and biological significance of the proposed work, justification for the selection of the host laboratory, as well as letters of recommendation.

Applicants who have successfully passed the pre-screening will be invited for a personal or video interview and if this is not possible, the candidate’s application for a written assessment will be sent.

All applications are evaluated by the Fellowship Committee based on:

  • Previous scientific achievements of the applicant.
  • The novelty and biological relevance of the proposed research requests to further explore a topic similar to a PhD project usually receive lower priority for funding.
  • Suitability of the host laboratory for the applicant’s proposed research and training.

The result of the selection is usually announced within 14 to 16 weeks of the evaluation deadline on the fellowship website.

Note: Interviews usually take place within 6 to 10 weeks of the assessment deadline. Interviews are conducted remotely via video and candidates may be asked to present a seminar as part of the interview.

Lastly, It is important to visit the official website link found below to access the application form.
